It was a series of beeps that came from a 183-pound Soviet spacecraft that whipped around the Earth's orbit every ninety-eight minutes. Those beeps were proof that Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite was a successful mission. That day, October 4, 1957, Soviet Union not only made their mark in history, but also launched the Space Race.
Dedicated to the success of Sputnik, this watch has a classic design that fits comfortably on the wrist. Its signature feature is a dial with an image of the globe that revolves around a disk, replacing the second hand. This design symbolizes the first artificial earth satellite and that success is always on the horizon.
